    Everything is just alright, there is no happy and also no sad. If I'm not then the **** is wrong with me?
    I have a self diagnosed schizoid personality disorder but even considering this it seems seems dull.

    Yes, that numb feeling could suggest you are depressed.

    Or perhaps it is more complex than that.

    You need to see a professional.

    Hey; I'm really sorry to hear things seem very grey for you :/ No-one on TSR is trained to be able to give diagnoses but have you thought about giving your GP a visit? You said you have self diagnosed schizoid personality disorder?

    When you're depressed, you may feel numb or extremely saddened/hopeless (apart from other normal feelings like happy, angry etc). If you start having self-harm and/or suicidal thoughts or it's interfering with your personal life, then it's time to see your GP.

    Don't ever, ever try to self-diagnose especially with psychological disorders/mental illnesses because you are very likely to try and imitate those disorders/illnesses the next time something comes up (like when you feel sad one time you might think you have depression etc). It makes it hard for doctors/psychiatrists to properly, accurately diagnose you when you meet them because you're going to try and fit into those criteria of a mental disorder/illness you think you might have.

    Also, mental illnesses are not cool. Personality disorders or severe mental disorders can interfere with your relationships (family, friends) and people who have them most likely have to take meds for years and/or therapy.
